Emerging global networks for free access to law: WorldLII’s strategies

The emerging ‘free access to law’ network 1.1. The challenges of global legal research Legal research increasingly has global dimensions. Commercial legal publishers have responded to these developments in a number of ways. Both the internationalisation of legal research and the decline of local control over legal information call for a response from those who value free access to legal information3, and who consider that free access to essential legal information should be part of a person’s civil rights everywhere. By 'essential legal information' (also called ‘public legal information’) we mean primary legal materials (legislation, case-law, treaties etc) and some secondary (interpretative) materials (law reform reports, travaux préparatoires, investigative commission reports etc).

» Individualisme et égoïsme. Tocqueville

L’individualisme est une expression récente qu’une idée nouvelle a fait naître. Nos pères ne connaissaient que l’égoïsme. Speaking with Karl Marx. LONDON, DECEMBER 18 [1878]--In a little villa at Haverstock Hill, the northwest portion of London, lives Karl Marx, the cornerstone of modern socialism.

Expansion causing 'chaos' across the world. Philip Altbach says global expansion may entrench the dominance of Western university systems The world’s university system is in “chaos” because of the globalisation and enormous expansion of higher education, a leading scholar has argued.

Expansion causing 'chaos' across the world

Philip Altbach, director of the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College, warned that there was “a lot to worry about” in the global sector and that the downsides of these two trends were being ignored. “Global mobility of students and faculty is higher then at least since the period of the medieval European universities,” he told a symposium in his honour held at the institution on 5 April.

But this movement had created a brain drain from the “peripheries” of higher education to the “centres” – North America, Europe and parts of the English-speaking world such as Australia – he said. Enseigner avec un manuel numérique. What Can I Do With A Humanities Degree? Bruce B.

Janz. The Persistence of Crisis: Work Harder or Fight Back. At my monthly department meeting yesterday, the department’s representative to our University Senate gave his report on their last meeting. As part of his report, he told us some of the concerns our university president, Javier Cevallos, expressed about a recent drop in enrollment. Cevallos’s remarks before our University Senate echoed a statement he released in October 2012 in order to explain another $3 million shortfall: Budget Shortfall This fall semester, Kutztown University is facing a problem of serious magnitude. For the second straight year, the university has experienced a drop in enrollment.Almost 300 students have made the decision not to come back to KU to continue their education for this fall semester.

This story of “fiscal crisis” has been the norm at Kutztown University for most of the ten years I have worked here. Of course, there are other, concrete reasons why these specific students left Kutztown. About the Thesis Whisperer.

FONV has been working hard to raise awareness about political, legal, and ecological issues in the Nemaiah Valley, British Columbia. Three such issues are the wild horse ranger program, the aboriginal title case Tsilhqot’in Nation v. B.C., and the on-going proposals to build a multi-billion dollar open-pit gold and copper mine in the area. Marc Pinkoski « Free Knowledge Project.

By the end of the month, Federal Minister of the Environment, Leona Aglukkaq, will declare her government’s intentions on a proposal for the development of a large, open-pit gold and copper mine in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Region of Central BC. This will be the Conservative Cabinet’s second decision on the proposed project after rejecting the first one in 2010. If completed, the mine is projected to be the second largest open-pit mine in Canada. Just like the first decision, the second proposal is being considered after an Environmental Assessment and formal recommendations from an independent panel appointed by the Minister of the Environment. For both assessments, the panels were composed of known experts in their fields who were tasked with reviewing scientific evidence and hearing live testimony from the proponent (company), interested parties, and community members about the proposal.

That’s an actual quote, by someone who apparently did not think they were saying something so humiliatingly vacuous that the only possible reaction would be to take a vow of silence and change professions.

Thanks, Textbooks. Todorov ou le moi dialogique au carrefour des cultures - Signes, Discours et Sociétés. L’intérêt de Todorov pour le dialogue est né au début des années 80 sous l’influence de la pensée de Mikhaïl Bakhtine. Le « principe dialogique », formulé par Todorov à propos du théoricien russe, est une notion complexe qu’il convient d’envisager à plusieurs niveaux : la parole de tout être humain, l’intertextualité, les différentes formes discursives à l’intérieur du roman, genre dialogique par excellence.

Le programme PRESAGE - Présage. La foule parisienne et ses évènements au XVIII° siècle par Arlette Farge. Pour cette conférence, notre section orléanaise accueille le 27 janvier 2011 Mme Arlette Farge. Directrice de recherche au CNRS et enseignante à l’EHESS, celle-ci a consacré sa vie à l’histoire des femmes et à l’histoire des classes populaires du XVIII° siècle. Auteur d’une vingtaine de livres (dont le dernier est : « Essai pour une histoire des voix ») et d’un nombre considérable d’articles, participant sur France-Culture à la « Fabrique de l’Histoire », elle a aussi donné au n° 64 de la revue orléanaise Théodore Balmoral un très beau texte dont le président Malissard lit l’extrait concernant le XVIII° siècle.

Arlette Farge nous informe d’abord de sa « façon singulière de travailler ». Proche de Michel Foucault et de Jacques Revel, elle doit aussi beaucoup aux romanciers contemporains comme Pierre Michon et ses « Vies minuscules » ou Pascal Quignard. Ses sources sont avant tout les archives de la police, détenues par les Archives nationales et la Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal. Comment enseigner l’histoire du genre et des homosexualités à l’école ?
